Fast Fashion - Updating the Exclusivity of Fashion

     In the following article the author considers the meaning of the cathegories of exclusivity, fashion, trend and beauty in the face of fast fashion and consumption. The first part concentrates on the explanation of main concepts and the status of trend ("everything can be fashionable"), "the issue of buying". Afterwards the author analyses the idea of exclusivity and its further connections with aesthetics (considering the popularity of "ugly fashion"). In the light of these circumstances it will be necessary to reassess our picture of obsolescent exclusivity, it will be also important to appreciate the role of sustainable ways of "consuming" fashion.
